When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Sabbath Day Scribblings - Gratitude for Everything

"Thou Shalt
The Lord 
Thy God
   In all things."  
D&C 59:7

It can be hard to be thankful for things that you don't think you want or need.  It can be hard to find the good under the winter snow of life.  But I have learned to rejoice in the seemingly endless days of winter.  One of my all time favorites quotes is simply, 
"The Bible often says, 'It came to pass,'
It never says, It came to stay!"
I love the early days of winter.  The first snow on the ground, the bite of cool in the air.  I love the whiteness and the simplicity of the time.  I also love having a fire in my fireplace.  But as the days go on, and the cold becomes deeper, I start to find myself wishing for spring to come.  I can't wait to see the growth start on the trees and in the ground.  I get antsy for the planting and the signs of new life.  So, at this time, I am trying to remember to Thank Him for everything.  Even snow in February.
